Yarmolenko and Zinchenko in midfield as Ukraine face North Macedonia

Oleksandr Zinchenko (€5.5m) is the key EURO 2020 Fantasy asset as Ukraine face North Macedonia on the second day of Matchday 2.

Classified as a €5.5m defender, the Manchester City man is, once again, in the usual midfield role he fulfils for his country.

In what looks like a 4-5-1 formation, Andriy Yarmolenko (€8.5m), who scored against the Netherlands in Matchday 1, features on the right-hand side of midfield.

The West Ham man is something of a differential in this match, owned by just 2% of EURO Fantasy managers.

Ruslan Malinovskyi (€7.0m) and Roman Yaremchuk (€7.1m), who assisted and scored in Matchday 1, are in a similar position, both owned by 3% for this afternoon’s clash.

Meanwhile, Heorhii Sudakov (€4.0m) remains a non-playing option in the bargain defender bracket, although 10% own the Ukrainian.

Ezgjan Alioski (€4.5m) is the only North Macedonian with more than 1% ownership for Matchday 2, currently sat in 3% of squads.

Ukraine XI (4-5-1): Buschan; Mykolenko, Matviyenko, Zabarnyi, Karavaev; Malinovskyi, Zinchenko, Stepanenko, Shaparenko, Yarmolenko; Yaremchuk.

North Macedonia XI (3-4-1-2): Dimitrevski; Musliu, Velkovski, Ristovski; Alioski, Spirovski, Ademi, Nikolov; Bardi; Elmas, Pandev.

    Pretty good game all around.

    Zinch(c) was a bust but Yarmo (10) and Bushcan (8) is solid.

    Add to Immobile and Spinna and it’s 4/6 returns.
    Pretty pretty good.

    Imma wondering if I should sub Mount in for Insigne tomorrow ..

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years

      How many points has Insigne?

          Might as well spin the wheel. Mount could get an assist but this game can't reflect how good he is.

      Fur sure...

      Nothing to lose, I guess. All my defenders will have played by then, so auto sub options are gone.

      Yeah, no brainer.... Dûh

        Stay Insigne or sub in Olmo?

      Eriksen to Yarmolenko for md3 looks good move

      Not a good game for me owned two Ukraine lads.
      Milanovskyi and Zinchenko.

      21 points from 6. Not a good start.

      Tomorrow becomes a crucial day again.

      Last MD Schick's brace saved me.

      Have Perisic, Forsberg and Schick tomorrow. Depay(C) tonight. Make something happen guys.

        I have even less 19 points. Looks like I will have to use my full bench.

        36 from 6 not including Cap.
        Obvs happy with that.

        Got Meunier, Dumfries & Wijnaldum to go today...so could end up looking pretty nice if it all breaks my way.

          54 from 7 including cap.

            noice!

      Kom så Danmark - Mikkel Damsgaard called up which is great to see with 2 caps 2 goals, hoping for the best this evening, really cant see us beating Belgium (can dream) 😀

        Your team could do better than you think. Denmark will be playing for Eriksen.

      Best midfielder pick for 8m for MD3? Except Torres, Alaba, Berardi.

        Milanovysky he could not have been more unlucky today if he tried. On set pieces and everything.

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          snap

        2. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Yep he looked great, was a lot of fun to watch, sad now he’s most likely off pens forever but the set pieces and great passes, getting into goof shooting positions is all promising. Him or Yarmolenko is the question

      2. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Despite blank today Malinovski looked great. Yarmo at 8.5 is also a good shout...could be a cagey match with Austria though for 2nd place in the group

        Locatelli is only 5.5 too - with Wales coming up.
        That might be a nice double with Berardi.

        Also good savings.

    10. Nightcrawler

      Yarmalenko overall ownership may be 2% but looking at the teams in the ffs league its almost certainly over 90% among ffs users

        lol - at least out of the 20 folks on here chatting through the game it was.

      For my money, Bushchan & Malinovskyi had great games ..... trouble was, I had the big C on Malinovskyi. Not having a terrific round ; 28pts with 4 to come.
